Bismuth is one of the weirdest-looking elements on the Periodic Table , but its internal properties just got even stranger. Scientists have discovered that at a fraction of a degree above absolute zero (-273.15°C), bismuth becomes a superconductor...

A new study is the first to show that living organisms can be persuaded to make silicon-carbon bonds--something only chemists had done before. Scientists have "bred" a bacterial protein to have the ability to make the human-made bonds--a finding that has applications in several industries.

Researchers at the University of Tokyo demonstrate that using germanides of metals at the metal-germanium interface with suitable surface crystal planes, greatly improves the contact resistance and device performance germanium semiconductor devices. The findings are reported in Applied Physics Express.

Sulfur is an essential nutrient in crop production. It is classified as a secondary element, along with Mg and Ca, but it is sometimes called “the 4th major nutrient,” according to an article on the NutrientStewardship.com. Some crops can take up as much S as P. Sulfur has become more important as a limiting nutrient in crop production in recent years for several reasons. These include higher crop yields that require more S, less S impurities in ...

Japanese researchers have revealed a relationship between helium levels in groundwater and the amount of stress exerted on inner rock layers of the earth, found at locations near the epicenter of the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake. Scientists hope the finding will lead to the development of a monitoring system that catches stress changes that could foreshadow a big earthquake.

When the glass in the core of an optical fiber is replaced with a mixture of silicon and germanium and 'baked' at high temperature using a laser, the result is a single crystal fiber that has potential far beyond the transmission of light.
